Today, the GSF family is +3. Whenever new kids come in it is a bitter-sweet situation. Bitter because of the situation of why they are at GSF and sweet because they have a good place to live now. It's like beauty from ashes. Meet our three newest ...

I listen as the Hyrax ends his song to the Creator and the daytime creatures awake and takeover. I walk over to a spot where the day is seen awakening in its fullest, prettiest form. At least 5 kinds of birds sing their songs to the one who made them – the Creative God. Somewhere overhead another kind of bird joins in drumming with sound of his wings flapping through the air louder than other birds. But, he does not care that is his song just like all around there are tons of other birds making all kinds of different noises. But that is only the actual choir … the backdrop makes a difference too … the backdrop screams His name. The black night sky turns into one filled with soft grayish colors and beautiful shades of pink and they scream, ‘look at the creator! Look at what he has done!’ And then … slowly, slowly, he pink and the gray turn into bright blue and white clouds and they to scream His name, ‘Look, it’s a brand new day … all the fears of the night are gone … God has given you a second chance! Joy comes in the morning!’ And of course, what’s a song without a dance? The tall green dancers are taking a break but they are beautiful … covered in dew drops they make this scene look even more magnificent. The purple and yellowish-orange flowers are the dancers currently on stage … the birds help move them ... they land and again fly off sending the purple flowers bouncing up in down. The bright orange, yellow and green leaves in the forest add in their part … making this even more beautiful. The monkeys crash through the trees putting a unique twist to this show. Their music and their dance moves me … it makes me want to add in my own part … so here I add it in … and maybe others will be moved by music and use their gifts … to join in the dance … and move with all creation singing … not only because He is Creator God because He is The Creative God … and He gives us all our own unique song making one beautiful melody … stretching from east to west and north to south. Join in with me … where is your part?
This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

.... for Gloria
When we came to GSF four years ago I honestly didn’t know how to respond to you. At first I didn’t really even want anything to do with you. I don’t remember when that changed, but now I am so glad it did. There were so many times when I would go see you in the hospital and thought you wouldn’t make it out. You did sweet girl, you made it out of the hospital every. Single. Time. God had a bigger plan for you … A much bigger plan for you. I am forever grateful that I got to sit and watch that big plan for you unfold. Many people would think you wouldn’t have even made it to GSF. Many little girls and boys in your village just like you ‘accidently die’ as little babies. Gloria, that wasn’t God’s plan for you. He made it nearly impossible for that to happen to you, sweet girl. He brought you to GSF where you would be safe and loved. Maybe part of His beautiful plan for your life was to come and change my heart. Because, you and the other special needs kids at GSF did. My heart for special needs kids has grown beyond what I could have ever imagined.
All my love,
